Moran Sanderovich (Israel)
Since the beginning of her artistic praxis, Moran Sanderovich has been interested in the expansion of the body's perception and its traditional boundaries. In her work, which spans across various mediums as performance, sculpture, installation and photography, the artist engages the grotesque and uncanny to produce narratives of transformation. Sanderovich turns the grotesque into poetic works, many of which stem from personal experiences. She “finds power and strength from the depths of open wounds”, regarding it as part of the female and queer experiences alike. By viewing disability, mutation, and decay as starting points for Other forms of life, Sanderovich work challenges and confuses normative conceptions of the body as a political and social concept.
